Meghan Markle Just Keeps Pushing Boundaries In the Royal Family

Meghan Markle just keeps breaking royal protocol and though she’d never speak of it publicly, there’ a good chance that Queen Elizabeth is getting fed up with her behavior.

The queen has been known to bend the rules occasionally when it suits her, and even turns a blind eye to her grandchildren and their spouses sometimes too. But one thing Queen Elizabeth can’t stand is having the royal reputation, which she worked so hard on over the decades, to be sullied in the name of personal preferences.

Part of the problem is that Meghan Markle had no idea what she was getting into when she married Prince Harry. Now she’s left dealing with the aftermath and trying to raise her family as best she can under the circumstances.

There are certain changes that Queen Elizabeth isn’t fond of

Everyone’s a critic when it comes to raising children, and ultimately there is no right or wrong way to do it. Still, royal sources are assuming that the queen won’t be thrilled with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s latest parenting decision.

Royal commentator Neil Sean made some comments about how the Duke and Duchess of Sussex plan to raise Archie as a vegan. “Basically, the story here is that Meghan apparently wants to raise baby Archie as a vegan. Right, nothing wrong with that,” he said while appearing on Today. “But the queen as you know, as you can imagine, is very much a person of tradition, likes traditional meals. Allegedly, according to this piece, she is not very happy. There’s no confirmation at all on this.”

The queen has some of her own particular tastes about food, so she doesn’t have much room to talk if she does have a problem with her great-grandson being vegan.

It’s not the first time Meghan Markle broke royal protocol

The whole vegan diet controversy is one of many instances when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle bent the rules. Recently, they chose to have their son’s baptism as a private event and only released the photos of their choosing afterward. They don’t plan on revealing the identities of Archie Harrison’s godparents ever.

It’s clear that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are attempting to shield their son from the worst aspects of being famous. That’s one reason they moved to Frogmore Cottage and paid top dollar to fortify the area around it, complete with soundproof walls. They literally want to hide him away from the world.

Despite differences, the queen and Meghan Markle get along

She may not be thrilled with every decision that Meghan Markle makes but despite their differences, most everyone agrees that Queen Elizabeth and Meghan Markle have a good relationship. The very things that annoy the queen — Markle’s fierce independence and stubbornness — are two things that people have said about the queen herself.

Plus, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle don’t need to be as forthcoming as Prince William and Kate Middleton need to be. While the Duke of Cambridge is preparing to take over the throne one day, Prince Harry has a vastly different destiny.

If he and Meghan Markle want to keep breaking rules, that’s on them.
